Concealers -Collection 2000 - Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Concealer
kiwachan 5/17/2013 11:17:00 AM
This is my HG concealer. I use it under my eyes, on blemishes, just wherever I need to conceal. It works AMAZING. First, I found it quite hard to work with because it dries fast, and is a bit hard to blend out - but I got used to it, and now use it everyday. I have really dark circles, but this covers it. Would recommend to anyone. And for the price, you can't really go wrong!
Cleansers -Yes To Carrots - Yes to Cucumbers Daily Gentle Cleanser
kiwachan 3/3/2013 10:26:00 PM
This cleanser does the job. I use it in the morning on my oily skin, and it gets rid of any excess moisture and dirt. It's very gentle, but very effective at the same time. My skin is very sensitive so most cleansers just make my face go completely red, but not with this one. I will use this up, and if I don't know what cleanser to buy I will reach for this one. I really like it, but I wouldn't recommend it to people with dry skin. My skin isn't breaking out because of this cleanser.
I'm not a fan of this BB-cream. I ran out of my Holika Holika bb-cream, that is a korean one, and decided to try out the GOSH bb. First of all, the color is perfect - I'm very pale all year, and this matches me very well. The texture is very gel-ish, and that's a con to me. It's a bit hard to blend, and the coverage is VERY light. I do need more coverage, but I don't think it's very buildable since it becomes very cakey on my skin. I like a bit more coverage, but seems I just can't have it with this BB because it makes me look cakey. My skin gets shiny throughout the day, and it usually doesn't with the Holika Holika one. Overall; Pros: The 01 shade is light enough. The packaging is fine. Cons: More coverage, it's WAY too light on the skin. Didn't even out my skintone. Cakey on the skin. Gets shiny throughout the day. I will probably just throw this one out, and go back to Korean BB-creams. Wouldn't recommend this to anyone, really.
LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS! My skin has been breaking out so bad recently, and nothing I used would make it any better. I decided to try this out, 'cus it couldn't make it worse than it already was. Just after using this for two days, my pimples were getting smaller, don't hurt anymore and they're almost gone - plus, I haven't gotten any new. I would recommend this to anyone. I have sensitive skin myself and I use them in the T-zone and on my chin. Wouldn't use them on my cheeks or neck. The smell is fine when you get used to it, but the pads tend to sting a little.
This is my HG shampoo, to be honest. It works so well for me. I have very oily hair, and it gets rid of all that. But, at the same time, my hair is REALLY dry. This doesn't dry my hair out like most shampoos do. It doesn't weigh my hair down. I just finished my first bottle along with the conditioner, and I will repurchase. The only two products that really keep my hair healthy!
I really like this product. First thing I want to say, is that it took me a while to learn how to use it right on the cheeks - it's somehow hard to blend, because it stains - when it's there, it's there, so you'll have to blend it right the first time. I usually use this as a lipstain, and it works wonders for me. It doesn't dry out my usually dry lips, and it lasts a long time. I wouldn't recommend this to someone who is very knew to makeup, since it can be tricky to use.
Treatments -L'Oreal - Elvive Anti Breakage Intense Mask

I really liked this product, but the thing is - it leaves so much residue in your hair, and like a layer of silicone. It works so well, makes my hair so soft, but I have really oily hair and this just made it even worse.
Eyeliner -Maybelline - Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner
kiwachan 12/13/2012 7:40:00 AM
I think this eyeliner is perfect! I would never use it without a cream base, or an eyeprimer, but this works so well. It goes on smoothly, but is also easy to remove. Doesn't smudge on me, even though I have oily eyelids. I will repurchase this, it just works for me.
Blush -Chanel - Les Tissages de Chanel - Blush Duo Tweed Effect
kiwachan 12/10/2012 5:35:00 PM
I have this in Tweed Coraile, and it's so beautiful. It was one of my very first blushes, and it's very subtle but can be build up. This is my all time go-to blush, and I use this everyday. I haven't hit pan on it yet, which is very surprising. It's expensive, but you don't need a lot of product - so overall, it's cheaper. The only thing is the lasting power, I feel it could last a little longer, but I don't mind touching up, since it's super quick. I'm not using the brush that came with it though. The packaging is very chic, and looks so fancy! Love it so much!
I tried this because I had a giftcard for a drugstore, so I just picked this up to try out something new. And I must say, I really like this! It doesn't clump or smudge on me, but gives my lashes some length and volume - the perfect amount for my lashes, since they're both short and thin. It's great for everyday, and is very light on the lashes. I can definitely build this up for a night out, and even though it's not the waterproof version it lasts all day - and probably all night too.
I really wanted to like this product, since everyone has been raving about it for a couple of years. But it does not work on my lashes. It doesn't really give any length, but it doesn't really give any volume either. It's okay for everyday use, but it smudges on me and I have all these kind of mascara flakes all over my face after a couple of hours. Wouldn't recommend this, unless you're just starting to use makeup and want to keep it very natural.
Pressed Powders -Rimmel - Stay Matte Pressed Powder (ALL)

This powder does not work for me at all! I bought this because it was so cheap, and I only heard good things about it. First of all, the lightest color is too dark for me, so it makes my skin look weird. Second, no matter how much or little I put on it looks SO powdery, and so cakey! Third, it keeps me matte for an hour - then back to being even more shiny!! It doesn't make my foundation last longer either. I would never recommend this to anyone ever, even though it might work for others. Will go back to my Dream Matte from Maybelline.
I quite like this product, but somehow I don't. The packaging is fine, the price is fine, but the product itself doesn't really work for me. It makes me look cakey, and it doesn't keep me matte all day, which is a must for me. I will use this one up, but my skin is simply too shiny for this!
This is my HG bronzer, for now. I've been looking for a bronzer, that was light enough - I'm too light for most foundations as well. This bronzer is really amazing for contouring, and is easy to apply and blend as well. It doesn't have any shimmer in it, which I really like. It lasts all day on me, doesn't look muddy or orange at all! The only con if this product to me, is the packaging. I have broken one once before by dropping it (whoops), but then again - it's really cheap, and lasts me months!
Lip Treatments -eos - Lip Balm Sphere - Summer Fruit

I absolutely love this lipbalm! As I live in Denmark, the weather is really cold and rainy all the time, so a good lipbalm is a must. I really like the smell, some might think it's a bit too much perfume but I don't really notice the smell when I have it on my lips. It's fresh and sweet, without being too heavy. It makes my lips so soft and healthy-looking, and it doesn't feel waxy or sticky. I can't stand a sticky lipbalm/lip-product, so I'm really glad that I found this! It might not be that cheap (in Denmark), but it's so worth the money. I will definitely repurchase!
